A huge National Basketball Association affair will take place on Thursday Night as the game of the night. The Golden State Warriors are traveling to San Antonio. This is the first meeting between the two teams this season. The Golden State Warriors come into the game listed at -6.5 (MyBookie) over the San Antonio Spurs.
Warriors Looking to Keep Dynasty
The Golden State Warriors are the defending NBA Champions. Golden State is seeking their fourth straight trip to the NBA Finals, and their third title in four years. The Warriors are 5-3 to start the season, with 3 out of 4 wins on the road. The Warriors are scoring 121 points per game, and allowing teams to score 114.1 per game. The Warriors are coming off a blowout win on the road at the Los Angeles Clippers.
Steph Curry is the top scorer for the Warriors, scoring 28 points per game. Kevin Durant is next for Golden State with just over 25 per game. The Warriors are looking to get a little more scoring from their forward Draymond Green, but the former Michigan State star is still ripping down 7.2 rebounds per game. The Warriors rank 1st in assists per game as well, with just shy of 31 per game.
Spurs Seeking Health
The San Antonio Spurs are still without their top scorer and athlete Kawhi Leonard. The Spurs have dropped three straight games after starting the season with four straight wins. The Spurs allowed teams to score 100 or less in all of their first four games, but have allowed 104 points per game in the current three game losing streak. The Spurs are 27th in the league with 98.1 points per game.
LaMarcus Aldridge is the leading scorer for the Spurs, with more than 23 per game. The spurs have always been one of the top rebounding teams in the league under head coach Gregg Popovich, and that’s the case as well this season, with 47.7 per game. San Antonio is seeking their third straight season with 60 wins or more. Last season, San Antonio won 61 games in the regular season.
Warriors Blowout Spurs
The San Antonio Spurs are in trouble in this game. The Spurs are a good basketball team, but do not have the athletic talent to keep up with the Warriors in this game. The Spurs are in danger of losing their fourth straight game, which is rare for this franchise. The Spurs need to get their leading scorer back.
When they do they will be taken serious as a Western Conference contender, but until then they are in trouble, especially in this game. The Golden State Warriors are going to win this game, and win it big. The final bet for this game is the Golden State Warriors -6.5 over the San Antonio Spurs.
